I am a stay at home mom with a knack for being thrifty. I taught myself how to coupon while settling into my new mommy position. At first, I used websites to find deals and match ups. Each week, I visited stores with my itinerary in hand only to find items were not on sale or were price pointed differently. These “deals” quickly became busts. I also reviewed online coupon previews to prepare for the following week’s sales. When Sunday finally rolled around coupons I had expected were non-existent or values were different. I quickly realized sales and coupons are regional. It didn’t make sense to continue using a website that didn’t reflect coupons or sales in my area, Lansing. I began finding my own match ups. I became more successful and I dealt with far less disappointment. That is one reason I created Centsibly Saving.
Every time I shop I hear people whispering about my near 10 lb. coupon baby…err…binder. I notice as unlookers wonder how in the world I just bought 10 full size bottles of Dial body wash for a grand total of…drum roll please….49¢. That is not a typo. I actually paid about 5¢ for each body wash! Explaining what I do and how I do it is too difficult while standing in the checkout lane. Also, I’m toting my couponing side kick who doesn’t always appreciate mommy having adult conversations. I digress. I wanted a place for Lansing area residents, whether you’re already a coupon professional or still trying to figure out what all the hype is about, to experience Lansing coupons, Lansing stores and our town’s amazing deals.
